Rosacea skincare routine

Manage Subscription

Rosacea causes a specific type of sensitive skin. Skin blood vessels inflammation leads to the difficulties with skin nourishment and supply with oxygen and water. This causes slow down in skin cells division and skin regeneration. Rosacea skin rapidly loses water and becomes dry. The hyperactive immune system causes the skin to be prone to irritation.

Therefore, the main principles of skincare for rosacea skin are to avoid irritation and ensure good moisturizing. Exfoliation is out, cleansing - moisturising - nourishing is in.

It is also important to understand that rosacea is a chronic condition. It means that there are no quick fixes. The skincare regime should be allowed to develop and then you have to maintain it. An extended break in the skincare regime means that you will have to start from scratch.

Use alkalising products

It’s become a dogma that skin has an acidic pH5.5 and you have to use skincare products of this pH. However, only the top layer of skin has this acidic pH, the underlying layers that maintain and regenerate skin have alkaline pH. If unlike cosmetics the products are designed to penetrate deep skin layers, to maintain the balance, they should be alkaline to keep skin healthy.

Due to problems with skin regeneration, rosacea skin has a thin top layer. That’s why it’s especially important to use products that nourish the deep layers and help them. Sönd products have alkaline pH and will help your skin to reduce rosacea symptoms.

What is a good facial cleanser for rosacea?

The best products for rosacea should not contain any irritating compounds. It should have a calming effect and doest strip the skin of it’s natural oils.

The Sönd cleanser is formulated to help sensitive skin including rosacea skin. It includes calming calendula, soothing chamomile and balancing jojoba which provides an effective and gentle cleansing solution.

Is moisturizer good for rosacea?

Moisturising skin at least twice a day is essential for rosacea. Rosacea skin is dry and irritated, so it is important to hydrate skin and lock in the moisture.

Make sure you use a moisturiser that supports the natural alkaline state of the deeper layers of your skin. Most creams in the industry have an acidic base which can cause acidic stress which can lead to skin irritation.

At Sönd, our moisturiser is formulated with unique salt compounds that work with your deepest skin cells to boost hydration, support regeneration and provide essential trace nutrients.

A serum can provide additional hydration

The serum is a product you can apply after cleansing and before moisturising. It contains concentrated nourishment in a form of small molecules that penetrate deep skin layers. The nourishment is concentrated and effective.

Using serum is especially important for rosacea skin. Rosacea skin has a broken natural regeneration and balance, therefore it needs all the help it can get.

The Strength training serum by Sönd contains powerful humectants and antioxidants hyaluronic acid, Moringa and Pomegranate extracts that deliver a boost to the skin.

Night cream for rosacea

It’s important to protect your skin during the day from pollution and UV light. But it’s equally important to use night time to replenish and restore skin cells, to promote skin regeneration. An alkaline night cream will provide all this while you sleep Sönd’s Midnight Feast Cream contains ingredients proven to help Rosacea (hemp and coconut oil).

Face masks

Face masks are the next line of defense against rosacea. They provide deep cleansing, moisturising and nourishment. While choosing a mask, it’s important to select one that is not irritating and contains ingredients beneficial to rosacea skin.

Feed the skin from the inside out

Skincare doesn’t stop with the surface. You need to literally feed your skin inside out, to deliver the right ingredients from within. Sönd has developed and produced supplements that are formulated to boost rosacea skin repair and regeneration and reduce the visible signs. The supplements contain ingredients proven in clinical trials to lessen rosacea symptoms.

Does exfoliating help rosacea?

No. Exfoliating removes the top layer of skin and unavoidably irritates it. Avoid exfoliating during rosacea as it can make the condition worse. Similarly, avoid mechanical irritation of the skin, don’t use a washcloth or sponge. Gently cleanse, moisturise and nourish instead.
